A group of England football supporters have been injured in an alleged attack ahead of tomorrow's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine in Kiev.

Some 30 hooded Ukrainians armed with knives are said to have set upon the fans in a coffee shop.

Three Britons were taken to hospital following the fight last night, according to local reports.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are aware of incidents in Kiev involving British nationals.

"We are providing consular assistance."
